The final report from the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls will be released today in what’s expected to be an emotional ceremony. It will take place in Gatineau, Quebec. Reports say the report will for police services to do a better job dealing with human-trafficking cases. In the report, Marion Buller concludes that indigenous women and girls were targeted for violence in what was nothing short of a genocide. The inquiry’s chief commissioner relied on what she described as “important truths” from survivors who took part in months of testimony. The inquiry took three years to complete and included dozens of community meetings and testimony from well over 2,000 Canadians.
